Non-Porous Pure Silicon 5nm thick TEM Windows ( Single 25 micron square)

REF: US100-A05Q00 Categories: , , Brand:


5 nm, 9 nm, 15 nm, and NANOPOROUS

NOTE: US100-P30 replaced US200-P15. P30 Membranes are 3X more porous than P15. P15 is still available by special order.



SiMPore’s Non-Porous 5 nm TEM Windows
Amorphous Pure Silicon
– 5 nm thick membrane
– 100 micron thick frame, fits 3 mm sample holders
– NEW Dimension: (1) 25 x 25 micron window

What’s NEW?
We are offering a grid with a single window – just 25 microns (+/- 5 microns). This is used in a number of unique applications such as single pore DNA sequencing where an ion beam is used to drill a hole in the membrane.

Smaller single window grids (down to 10 microns) can be fabricated through our custom program. Please contact us for more information.

100% Satisfaction Guaranteed

Note: Non-Porous films are lightly wrinkled with approximately 5 microns or less deflection across 100 microns of travel. This is typically not problematic for high-resolution Imaging.

For examples of how these TEM windows can be used, please see Featured Publications
Nanometer Thinness: Thinner than the thinnest available carbon grids
Plasma Cleanable: Pure Silicon TEM Windows can be vigorously plasma cleaned to remove organic contamination, unlike carbon grids
Increased Uniformity: Reduced field-to-field variability
Increased Stability: At high beam currents and high annealing temperatures (600C for non-porous, >1000C for nanoporous)
Reduced Chromatic Blur: Half the chromatic blur of carbon grids
Nanometer-Scale Pores: Allow stable suspension of nanoscale materials for imaging without background
Silicon Composition: Sputter-deposited, pure, intrinsic silicon
Minimal Background Signal: Enables elemental analyses of samples containing nitrogen and/or carbon
